Maybe this raw opium seizure came from Myanmar
Today in BC is reporting that "Border services officers have seized a record amount of opium – nearly 2,500 kilograms – the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) announced in Tsawwassen Friday morning (Dec. 16).
The CBSA said the seizure, its largest to date, happened on Oct. 25 after the CBSA’s Metro Vancouver Marine Operations examined 19 marine shipping containers. Using a “wide range” of detection tools and technology, including X-ray technology, the CBSA said officers found irregularities in the shipping pallets as part of a deep concealment method.”
Further “physical examination” confirmed about 2,486 kilograms of opium concealed within 247 shipping pallets.
The drugs were turned over to the RCMP Federal Serious and Organized Crime unit for further criminal investigation."
Never mind getting an Amen, can I get a WTF?
That is astounding. It's not surprising that much opium was found at the port of Vancouver it was surprising they actually made a bust. This is good news. We have all been very cynical after they got rid of the port police. Now we see that the CBSA are able to investigate the ports themselves. They just weren't doing it.
I'm sure glad they are now. That saves lives.
